SPH Career Services is here to help students and alumni embark on meaningful careers. With the increasing demand for qualified public health professionals, the school aims to provide a variety of fellowship, internship and job opportunities to students.
There are several reasons to complete our career survey before commencement:
- Students appreciate having data on employment trends, career tracks, and salary ranges.
- Employment statistics enable us to report on alumni employment for accreditation.
- Employment data improves our career services program and helps us meet the needs of our students and alumni.
Community-University Engagement Tool Kit
In 2009, focus groups were conducted with students in School of Public Health nutrition, maternal and child health, and community health education departments. Students were asked to talk about their field experiences and describe what community-university engagement meant to them.
Upon completion of focus groups, interviews were conducted with SPH faculty and community partners. These interviewees discussed their experiences collaborating with the school, in addition to the barriers and rewards in engaging in such activities.
The uncovered themes of these focus group and interviews helped determine the direction of the objectives, resources and overall content featured in the Community-University Engagement Tool Kit.
